Website Hacked: Do Not Make Donations to Edhi Through Paypal

In a rather rare development, it appears that someone has taken control of Edhi’s official website and all payments made to a PayPal account — that’s linked on Edhi’s official website — are withdrawn by someone else.

Currently the website is showing a note that reads: “We Don’t Accept Payment Through Paypal On Website Kindly Make a Refund If Any of You Pay Donation To Any Paypal Account”.

This essentially means that a hacker had gained access to Edhi’s website and was collecting funds in his/her PayPal account.

Upon further investigation, we found that under “Donate Us” button — where there are various banks listed — an payment button through PayPal is inserted that leads to following page:

What we are yet to ascertain is the fact that why PayPal link is still shown on Edhi’s website, i.e. why the webmaster is not removing the Paypal link from the website.

While we have reported this to Edhi, it appears that Edhi webmaster is either unable to make any changes to website or he is not aware where Paypal links are embedded.

They simply pasted the note for Paypal refunds — without any investigation on the website itself — after someone told them about the payment that the foundation never received.

Check below the links that are embedded on Edhi’s official website:

This must be mentioned here that Ramzan is peak time for Edhi to get donations and thousands of people — from Pakistan and abroad — visit the website to make donations during the holy month.

  • first of all in PK , there is not webmaster , and no web developer , jo website aik dafa bana d , wo sir sey utar d jati hai , you have to directly contact to Edhi foundation to take down their website or atleast disable Donation Functionality if it is really hacked. webmasters ko emails karnay ka koe advantage nahi hai

    • There is majority of fakemasters who does not know core programming language… They simply copy paste. And some of the blogs like propk always copy paste content.

      • FYI Google was hacked, apple was hacked, yahoo was hacked and even NSA got hacked. #Opinionmaster

        • They accepted their mistake and fixed the problem and improved security. They didn’t wait around.

  • Any volunteer can help them, who have heart to save EDHI from big loss. EDHI Foundation still a big house for orphans, helpless people. Faisal EDHI trying well to take it forward with same pace.
    Need to donate as much as possible.

  • seems like everyone against edhi nowadays firstly the fake video of some random model now this get a life man

  • It seems hacking with Pakistani sites is so easy and people from abroad are taking donation money even the paypal facilities does not work in Pakistan… The hackers first take the control of the website and add the button there and program in accordance with their wishes and they sitting somewhere else in world where paypal works money is drawn there… But our programmers are not aware of such new techniques….
